  1. Pietro Romaniuk says:

    I understand your point, but I am not a god damn enterprise, i cannot put a price in all my day time, it is just insane, if I were able to put a price to my time it could let me put a price in my life. If my life has a price, I am a slave, right? The problem in my point of view is that the people waste their lifes trying to be sucessfull and famous and all this bull shit, but they never trully deep think: is this what I really wanna do? and even more than it, a fucking deeper question: what is be sucessfull? Do I need to shit money for this? or I just need enough money to give me freedom to do what I want and "waste" my time as I want?

    I love Jordan Peterson. This video is great. Thank you to who worked to create it. Could you add the blue collar workers to it who help make the world go around ? I know construction people, electricians, plumbers, iron workers, engineers, etc. who build and make and maintain what we all take for granted. Thank you

  7. pascal 7 says:

    Jordan Peterson is a Godsend.

  8. George R says:

    Jordan Peterson thank you you're the best universities do not want you to write because they don't want you to think they want you to pass tests

  9. George R says:

    They should close the universities today

  10. Andre EWERT says:

    Best thing you can do is download that App that limits your time on Facebook, Youtube and social 's a Google Store Extension..check into it

  11. Andre EWERT says:

    I usually start with the Hard Stuff First..that way, I move forward..proud of my day today…lol

  12. Andre EWERT says:

    Being one's own Boss requires Responsibility..I guess I must find a Dominatrix to keep me on

    50$ an hour?? he is crazy

  14. joe barker says:

    life's a juggle, some times we have to make changes due to family commitments. we don't all have an individual approach to things as we be pretty ignorant if i just focused on myself and what i had to do or wanted to do.

  15. Ed Kidd says:

    What an annoying voice. And delivery. And drama level.

  16. Justy EL says:

    And then you get cancer from such stress and everything goes to hell

  17. Azou Salim says:

    I love this speaker

  18. Joe Kopp says:

    It's a shame he gets as much flack as he does. It seems to me that he genuinely just wants to light a fire under the consciousness of people. He's trying to show people that many of our struggles can only be overcome from within. Hes done fantastic things for many people around the world just from these clips alone. I couldn't even imagine having a one on one with him.

  19. Vasileios Karagiannis says:

    Even if all ppls would stop wasting time nobody ain’t gonna have these 50,000 he’s talking about lol he is forgetting that everything in this world is milking us like pay your apartment food medical treatment card if theres such thing in your country and lot more maybe even he does lol 😂 in the other things I agree ppls should fucking move their asses and graduate and do the best just the cruel reality is that not all ppls can be rich or do the same profession to make a lot that’s all

  20. Raul mrexito says:

    Jordan is talking about efficiency but in reality his video is strongly inefficient. How many pictures are shown that bring nothing….He didn't show concrete applications of his points….He doesn't tell you how to study efficiently. Use your video time and the time of people efficiently. You could have done this video with the same content in 8 minutes!

  21. moodist 1er says:

    Jordan should take his own advice and manage some of his time studying about children who are born with two sets of genitalia and the intersexual people that they are, instead of talking about things he willingly doesn't understand. Then he won't have to act so butthurt about the idea of having respect for other people.
    Hell, if he'd have just managed his time to read the new rules at his workplace he might have understood what they actually said instead of throwing a temper tantrum over a perception of them that he invented himself.
    This dood's a fucking loser pandering to mob mentalities.
    You're all illiterate af for entertaining this idiot

  22. Howard Dixon says:

    I waist my time because there is nothing else to do with it.

  23. Mary Dolan says:

    I think it is the biggest disgrace for colleges to charge these outrageous costs that they will take a lifetime to pay off and will prevent them from buying a house or have a decent life

  24. Patu says:

    I get some "Alan Watts of the 20th century" vibes from this video.

  25. Paul nmn says:

    No wife no family because the women are riding the cock carousel
    No job no career no responsibilities because of affirmative action and illegal immigration
    so what do you want people to be motivated about doctor
    Come out of your hightower 'start leading crusade!

  26. Dangerous Dan says:

    I first watched this video with a 1.71 college GPA back in November. I’ve climbed to a 2.84 in 2 semesters and have become a better/more productive person in every aspect of my life. It’s something i think about as the turning point in my life. Proof is sort of in the pudding here. Listen to the man and follow through and you really can accomplish amazing things.

  27. imsoocheesy says:

    0:21 im doing exactly what hes saying by watching this video

  28. Oh No says:

    From 8:04 to 8:24 really hits my heart, because I spent my whole life denying God — not because of the biblical narratives, but really because of the moral responsibility. There's something so degrading about being responsible enough to refrain from certian pleasures while noticing that my being is inherently flawed. It really takes a lot to appreciate some 'Heavenly' grace because of natural inclinations that only leads to temporary desires I'm spiraling down to a spiritual death.

    Its not until now that I've realized that if I focus my efforts & responsibilities on the appreciation of the blessings in my life, i will tend to understand how to love myself, the people around me, or even God Himself.

    This is so humbling.

  29. Souhayl A Photographer says:

    top inspiring

  30. Hulk Hogan says:

    only few questions: what in our society is actually called productivity?
    does it fit to the imaginations of what productivity SHOULD be?
    how is society organised in this context?
    isnt it this "productivity" of the society, that kills all life on this planet in full awareness of it?^^

    so, is this self-optimisation in this society an expression of our pure ideology?
    is jordan peterson an ideologist?

  31. Francesco Cauzzi says:

    My doubt is, is this the way to be successful or is it this the way to be a capitalism slave, employed in a company where the owner is relaxing playing golf at the Bahamas and you working with all your schedule and shit,
    like a workaholic, with no free time, no holidays, just to permit to your boss doing that life!?

  32. Naz Khan says:

    For me what motivated me is the price tag of what it would be if I was being paid for time-wasting…. not on my time matey!

  33. Jure Meh says:

    Going to work is wasting your time.

  34. Jaredthedude1 says:

    Kermit has some good advice

  35. Go with God says:

    No one is watching something on you tube they don’t wanna watch, well maybe this video, I cannot listen it to the end

  36. Muhammad Umer says:

    You can take a man out of youtube,
    But you can never take youtube out of the man.

  37. orqg5000 says:

    "you're" done

  38. A says:

    What is a waste of time man? spend time playing music then become professional.Spend time playing sports then become athlet. People spend time clubing and dancing they become bardenders or pro dancers or managers. Do whatever you want. This person spent his time talking all the time never worked in a real company guess what…he become a youtube persona playing the Messiah Counselor.

  39. Out of Blue Pills says:

    I think Jordan has been following me around for years taking notes.

  40. Philip Cantos says:

    Thank you Pr. Dr. Peterson for saving my life.

  41. Francis Alkan says:

    can confirm. ever since i made a realistic yet productive schedule they day before.(with a 5 minute gap on each specific activity). i have been more productive than i have ever been.

  42. Taniazzc says:

    Increíble!!! Muchas gracias doctor

  43. Zedner says:

    motivate your self to become a better slave, if you like doing something that is not productive you shouldn't do that cause its "wasting your time", so get to work and earn alot of money for people who already have millions or billions, suck it up cause some billioner needs another yacht or a mansion cause his wife took his first mansion in divorce

  44. محمد العوادي says:

    As long as you know you are a mess, accept, surrender, wait until you have the will.
    Be sure that someday your mind will have the upper hand. This is how it works.

  45. Asoft Raiden says:

    I obeyed for long time, I became a doctor, now can I play video games ?

  46. Asoft Raiden says:

    I have points though, in a corrupt society like where I am from this might bring adverse results. So this works may be in USA. Being smart or hardworking is pointless where I am from.

  47. Long Johnson says:

    The thing is "wasting time" merely refers to using time for yourself, to take a break, to not run after the money. This is very important time. You are not a machine that can work 24/7 so waste some of your time or you will get sick!

  48. Alex R Fontes says:

    Awesome!! Mind blowing!! Excellent!! Thank you for posting this video.

  49. Cappa Donna says:

    YOU are a spiritual being. NOT a means of production.

  50. Dennis Crane says:

    Part of this condition is not-looking. If you get them looking then you can stimulate success.

  51. Hans Schmidt says:

    Never seen such a nonsense.. Nobody is able to work more than 10 hours a day with his brain. If you study more than 10h you may even get sick. The poor man his whole live is only work 🙁

  52. lorewalker cho says:

    Just remember you will never come back to this moment this very second so what were you doing in that moment

  53. Connie O. says:

    The last 9 yrs of my life were stolen!

  54. Sheila Greenfield says:

    How many hours do humans need to devote to mindless activities? Not 50 hours but maybe 30. The mind needs down-time

  55. Carlos Henrique Binda says:

    But if I didn’t waste time on YouTube I would never have watched this video.

  56. Richard Hanno says:

    happy burnout!

  60. Rakesh Kharta says:


  61. Muhammad Tayyab says:

    Why he said that the once the population reach 10Billion it will decline rapidly ? Anybody have any clue 😧

  62. Ex Factor says:

    I hate this development in society that we are forced to be effective (earn money)in every aspect of our lifes to be able to compete with people who work their asses of no matter how senseless or even anti-social the outcome of their job is or who start this life which is made more and more into a competition with much more money from their birth on. this bullshit ruins us all.

  63. anglekan says:

  65. Marchelo Marchol says:

    and … what is the prize at the end of the tunnel Jordy? immortality? i will lay here, relaxed, until immortality invented.

  66. Thibaud says:

    "What would do the person I wish to become?"
    If you read me : focus on the big toxic thing in your life.
    Cut the time you dedicate to it by half.
    Choose a thing to do you always wanted to do.
    Then leave toxicity and embrace all obstacles that lead to your goal <3
    Me: i told myself i don't wanna be a 40ys old man complaining about a stupid job and I applied to a school i always wanted to apply to : an art school it totally improved my life imo.

    A thorough, clear, concise and actionable summary:

    1. Daily Scheduling

    a. Schedule for the day you want (to be very efficient).

  84. Kshitiz Mishra Master Gamer says:

  85. jason wu says:

    Time to delete youtube app on your phone.

  86. gdenn says:

    While i agree with most of it, i don't believe that watching a youtube video occasionally is a bad thing. Look if you are working let's say 8 hours a day as a software developer you need sometimes this 30 minutes watching youtube to relax and get everything out of the way.

  87. matan hassan says:

    Regret!! I waste most of my time watching tube

  88. TheJaeHyeok says:

    제발 누가 한국어 자막좀 만들어 주셨으면 좋겠습니다 ㅠㅠㅠ

  89. C T says:

    Dropped out of college. Make jack for money. Curious to try certain things but I've seen multiple failures by many friends and it cost them big time. A few got lucky. Had one friend who was going to quit his job because they wouldn't give him day shifts initially. They called him back the next day and offered him a promotion with an 8 dollar per hour pay raise. Wtf. Thats not supposed to happen.

    When the recession hit in 2008, I lost my job and then my car. Started walking 5 miles one way to apply for jobs. Nothing. I only ended up getting a job on a whim from a friend about a year later. So luck was on my side for that. I guess hard work MAY pay off. But there is a healthy dose of luck with it when it comes to the job market.

    I'm pretty (100%) sure that's one of Jordan's lectures that had music and some video footage placed on top of it, this is the kind of video that Peterson mentioned at 0:26, just watch his lectures.
